Ulver,Arcturus 출신->보컬 Garm, 04년 자살한 Immortal, Gorgoroth 출신의 드러머Grim, Enslaved 의 키보드--> Ivar Bjnson/ 뭐 길게 적을 것도 없는 Borknagar 의 데뷔앨범 입니다.리드미컬한 흐름과 다양한 느낌이 나는 보이스+메이킹적인 기타음 화려함이나 감성적인 멜로디와 웅장함 이 느껴지는 흐름은 전체적으로 복잡미묘한 흐름이 인상적으로 다가왔습니다.

The more you listen to this, the more you'll enjoy it. Probably the most Black Metal album this band has released.

노르웨이 블랙메탈밴드들은 복스러운 밴드 이름이 많다.

메피스토님 말마따나, 전형적인 노르위젼블랙밴드의 데뷔앨범. 여기서 전형적이라 함은 상당히 긍정적인 단어이다.

화려한 멤버들이 일단 눈에 띈다. 전형적인 블랙메탈밴드의 데뷔앨범,.
